White House press secretary Robert Gibbs says both President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were angry that an two univited people were able to get into a state dinner at the White House.

Interviewed Tuesday on MSNBC, Gibbs said "it's safe to say he was angry. Michelle was angry." Gibbs was asked about the incident in which a Virginia couple, Michaele and Tareq Salahi, crashed the state dinner for visiting Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Gibbs noted the Secret Service is investigating and said the White House is re-examining its procedures. He told the network, "I think the president really had the same reaction the Secret Service had, and that was great concern for how something like this happened."
